Interview with a Modern Day Butler

Loric is our brilliant Senior Butler at Eden Rock Villa Rental. Loric joined the team at Eden Rock–St Barths in 2014, and his innate gift for hospitality has helped to create the unforgettable atmosphere we pride ourselves upon. We caught up with Loric to find out a little bit more about the ins and outs of his role at Eden Rock. Read on to learn what it’s like to be a modern day butler.

What are the most important qualities in a butler?

I would say the most important qualities are kindness, curiosity and the ability to adapt quickly to any scenario.

 What are your main day-to-day responsibilities?

The butler raises the quality of the guest experience by acting as a sort of channel and placing every service offered by the hotel—and indeed the island—at the disposal of our valued guests. Each guest is different, and it is our job to adapt to his or her particular needs. Nevertheless, as a butler, it is important to preserve my personality. For me, keeping a sense of humour in my daily interactions is what makes my job so enjoyable.

Have you ever had any bizarre requests that you’ll never forget?

Allow me to put it this way…many strange things pass as normal nowadays.
